Angels Cry

Originally included in the "Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel" album as a solo version, Mariah released a duet version with R&B singer Ne-Yo as a single from an upcoming re-release of the album, tentatively titled "Angels Advocate.". The project would be cancelled later on.

I shouldn't have walked away
I would've stayed if you said
We could've made everything ok
But we just
Threw the blame back and forth
We treated love like a sport
The final blow hit so low
I'm still on the ground

I couldn't have prepared myself for this fall
Shattered in pieces curled on the floor
Super natural love conquers all
'member we used to touch the sky
And

Lightning don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I said goodbye
I felt the angels cry
True love's a gift
But we let it drift
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry

C'mon babe can't our love be revived
Bring it back and we gon' make it right
I'm on the edge just tryin' to survive
As the angels cry

Limitless omnipresent
Kind of love couldn't have guessed
It would just up and disappear in
The whirlwind
Here I am walkin' on this narrow rope
Wobbling but won't let go
Waitin' for a glimpse of the sun's glow
I know I can stand just pull me back up
Like there ain't no hurricane
It's just us
I'm willing to live and die for our love
Baby we can get back that shine

Cause
Lightning don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I said goodbye
I felt the angels cry
True love's a gift
But we let it drift
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry

Come on baby, can our love be revived
Bring it back and we're gon' make it right
I'm on the edge just trying to survive
As the angels cry

Baby I'm missin'
You don't allow love to lose
We gotta ride it through
I'm reaching for you

Baby I'm missin'
You don't allow love to lose
We gotta ride it through
I'm reaching for you

Lighting don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I said goodbye
I felt the angels cry
True love's a gift
But we let it slip
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry

Mariah:
I shouldn't have walked away
I would've stayed if you said
We could've made everything ok
But we just
Threw the blame back and forth
We treated love like a sport
The final blow hit so low
I'm still on the ground

I couldn't have prepared myself for this fall
Shattered in pieces curled on the floor
Super natural love conquers all
'member we used to touch the sky

And lightning don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I said goodbye
I felt the angels cry
True love's a gift
But we let it drift
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry

C'mon babe can't our love be revived
Bring it back and we gon' make it right
I'm on the edge just tryin' to survive
As the angels cry

Ne-Yo:
I thought we'd be forever and always
You were serenity
You took away the bad days
Didn't always treat you right
But it was OK
I'd do somethin' stupid
And you'd still stay with me

But you can only go for so long
Doing the one you claim to love wrong
Before too much is enough
You look up
Find your love gone and

We were so good together
How come we could not weather
This storm and just do better
Why did we say goodbye

Cause lighting don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I said goodbye
I felt the angels cry
True love's a gift
But we let it slip
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry

Mariah / Ne-Yo:

We gotta ride it through
I'm reaching for you

Pitbull:
Mariah Carey
Ay mami que rica
I'm far from an angel
And you're my angel angel
I love your angel ass
I hate to see my angel cry
But sometimes I'm foolish, do things that break your heart
Play with your mind and emotions
I know I'm a work of art
Sometimes I feel lonely
And even helpless
But then I look in the mirror
And see I'm just being selfish
I wanna protect you
I wanna love you
You're my angel baby
There's nothing above you
